"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

Is it possible to revise 156 pages in a single nine hour period?

Yes it is.

Now I need a shower, a burger and a beer.

Not necessarily in that order.

Wow. That's 78 times faster than my revision pace the last two weeks.

Chris said...

Well done. i've been banging out edits myself, but this bests my 311 pages in a week by a damn sight...

Between last night and this morning, I added another 1300 words. Somebody stop me. Please.

It's out the virtual door now. My agent will read it over the weekend.

Back to work on the next book...

Hey man, congratulations. Nothing like sending it out the door and not having to think about it for a few days.
